Corning Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. recently announced that Corning® Gorilla® Glass has been designed into the GALAXY Tab 10.1, Samsung Electronics’ most powerful new tablet PC. The GALAXY Tab 10.1, which launched in the U.S. on June 8, is equipped with a 1 GHz dual-core CPU, the latest Android™ Honeycomb platform, and a 10.1 in. WXGA TFT LCD display. The GALAXY Tab 10.1 measures 8.6 mm thick and weighs 560 g. Thin, lightweight Corning Gorilla Glass, used as a damage-resistant cover, helps enable this durable, ultra-slim and lightweight design.

“For the GALAXY Tab 10.1, Samsung Electronics searched for the most durable, scratch-resistant glass, and again found the perfect solution with Corning Gorilla Glass,” said Hankil Yoon, vice president of Smartphone Product Planning for Samsung Electronics.
